Blueberry, Banana and Oat Muffins

Butter / oil free and not too sweet. The blueberries pop and go jammy. Great for using up an over-ripe banana.

Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a muffin tin with 8 - 10 paper or silicone cases.
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add 30 g of the oats and 50 g of the sugar.
Mash the banana and add to the dry ingredients with the yogurt, milk and beaten egg. Stir well then add the blueberries and stir in gently.
Using two spoons, fill the muffin cases (3/4 full), then sprinkle the remaining 10g of oats and 5 g of sugar on top of each one.
Bake in the oven for 15- 20 minutes until a cocktail stick or skewer comes out clean.

Ingredients

Egg, Beaten 1
Baking Powder 1 Tsp
Milk (any Kind - I Use Skimmed) 50 Ml
Over-ripe Banana 1 Medium / Large
Greek Yogurt / Other Natural Yogurt 150 G
Self Raising Flour 150 G
Caster Sugar (I Use Golden Caster Sugar) 55 G
Porridge Oats 40 G
Blueberries 75 G

Hints 'n' Tips

These are meant to be eaten cold (great for breakfast, or a snack anytime) but I can't resist them when they come out of the oven as they are delicious warm too. Great with a dollop of natural yogurt or creme fraiche.
They do sometimes stick to the paper cases a bit, unlike a buttery muffin, but it is not a big problem.
